This book looks at Swahili, and examines where it is spoken, who speaks it, what alphabet the language is written in, and other interesting facts. The book also includes introductions on how to say key phrases in Swahili, such as how to say hello and goodbye, or talk about your home, school, and family. A pronunciation guide at the back of the book explains how to pronounce the Swahili words used throughout the book.
